Château de Mercuès

Cahors Malbec 2015

You MUST DECANT this Malbec, much as you would any other ‘better’ Malbec from Cahors. If you do decant it, say, for an hour or two prior to drinking, you are rewarded with a wine that is ‘creamy smooth’, well balanced, inky dark joy. If you don’t decant, don’t bother trying it. I spent quite some time in Cahors, and their (and some other local vintners) wines are exceptional… more complex than the Argentines, but without decanting, you will not experience the joy. — 2 months ago

I have few bottles of 2015 in the cellar that I still reserve for in at least two years.

Domaine Le Roc

La Folle Noire d'Ambat Fronton Negrette 2019

I'm probably the biggest contributor of entries about this wine and no, this is not over the top at all (it is definitely) but this is really a fun wine that happens to be crafted very close to where I grew up 😊 super cool violet, blackberry, cherry, clay nose. The palate is very well balanced, showing a great acid backbone, but with those bright cherry and blackberry notes all along, a good width, some very mild yet caressing tannins that power up a surprisingly long, fresh, fruity finish. At 8 eur a bottle when you buy it from the estate, this is a one of the best pqr out there. A real steal. The definition of value. — a month ago

Domaine du Cros (Philippe Teulier)

Marcillac Fer Servadou 2019

A rustic smell of barnyard without the funk.

The grape is Fer Servadou.
Light bodied, with sweet tart like flavor and feeling. A bit lively and enjoyably delicious mouthfeel of cherry leather, mojito mint.
A unique and tasty tipple.
